Commentary on Joseph Grumbles Accident in Abilene

Reports sound like the car's driver made a serious mistake by failing to yield to thru-traffic before turning. Sadly that kind of thing happens all the time, but it's also not enough just to say it happened without also finding out exactly why. Did the driver just make a momentary and costly error? Were they awake, alert, and watching their surroundings? Could they have been distracted or impaired? How fast was the motorcycle traveling? What were sightlines and visibility like? Weather? Road conditions?

That's just a handful of the many questions I can only hope investigators will look into properly. Without accounting for all the possible factors the whole story may not be learned, which can mean victims and families are robbed of answers and the help they deserve. Will law enforcement take the time and care needed to find the truth?
